I just bought Dark Souls 2 on Steam, I have been playing it on PS3. I just started the PC version last night and am building a strength character. I went home at lunch and went through Heide's Tower of Flame to the Dragonrider. I am using the Halberd from the FoFG. There are a total of 9 enemies in Heide's Tower proper, which I killed. My Halberd busted about 2/3 of the way through the Dragonrider. Luckily, I had the NPC summoned, which bought me some time to switch to my Club.
My question is this: I know the Halberd breaks easy but is breaking that easy due to the Halberd or due to the PC version?
I have read "rumors" that weapon degradation is much quicker on the PC version but I don't know that to be fact. My strength character on the PS3 version is using a Claymore +10 and Mastodon Halberd +8. The Mastodon Halberd breaks easy in that game too but I have never used a Halberd in Heide's Tower until now.
Has anyone used a Halberd in Heide's Tower on the PS3 or XBox and had different results?
